Provincetown: 1953 The First Summer (2007) 6m. This extraordinary home movie is essentially a time capsule of Provincetown, Massachusetts, as it was in the summer of 1953, consisting of old stills and silent black and white film. In 1953, Yvonne Andersen and Betty King, art students at LSU, went to Provincetown for the summer to study with painter Hans Hofmann. Living there at the same time, aspiring writer Dominic Falcone. The trio met in Provincetown, and for a time were all working at the Lobster Pot Restaurant to pa their expenses. The film depicts a small Cape Cod town full of artists, summer life, in a wonderfully non-commercial era. For more on Yvonne Andersen, visit

For anyone who has spent time in P-town and appreciates history, this little gem is well worth the few moments it takes to view it. It's cheerfully narrated, full of interesting factoids, and a splendid mix of familiar and not-so-familiar scenes. I only wish there was more!
